"President Trump asked two of the nation’s top intelligence officials in March to help him push back against an FBI investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and the Russian government, according to current and former officials.
Trump made separate appeals to the director of national intelligence, Daniel Coats, and to Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, urging them to publicly deny the existence of any evidence of collusion during the 2016 election."
And the Republicans go on and on, screaming endlessly that there is no evidence to tie Donald Trump to any crime.
It does not take a long post to describe this behavior. It is witness tampering, obstruction of justice and subornation of perjury, coming directly from the "president" of the United States. It is also obviously consciousness of guilt, writ large across the sky in Washington.
Donald Trump is a common criminal and a thug, who knows he has done immense evil, and who is now willing to commit any crime to cover it up. There can no longer be any doubt about that.
I've heard a lot of talk lately about the danger of replacing Trump with Mike Pence or Paul Ryan, who will be just as malignant as Trump but in a much less flamboyant manner that will be harder to fight. That is true, but sorry, there is a point where Trump's criminality is so great, and so unapologetic, that we will be forever damaging the country if we don't deal with it. He must go. The damage of a Pence or Ryan Presidency must be left to be dealt with later, while we take care of the present danger.
